I have a smart playlist that collects all the podcasts with 0 playcounts Once I listen to it, it gets removed from the smart playllist. The problem was until 3.0, the smartplaylist would NEVER live update. It wouldn't remove the listened podcasts until I synced with itunes. But with the 3.0 software, it now live updates! Not a big deal for some but for me that's a huge deal. I always hated how the regular ipods live updated but the iphone didn't. Good to know that it now functions like itunes.
